Damn, do these sites ever stop getting launched lol.. I already have too many of them to start up a new one..what's next a starbuck's social network site?

Not for me, just don't have the time to indulge in this, I've kinda out grown the fad of these things but it looks like it has potential but its crappy layout wink

This sounds like it'd work on paper, but I have no doubt that this site will attract too many varied people who will invariable fight... a lot. I'm predicting constant flame wars.

good idea I guess, but I wont be participating in this for the following reasons.

Too many adverts and popups
Poor unsightly layout....

#3, maybe. the goal and target of this social network is as clear as the goal and target would be for a Starbucks social network. if there's a reason, why not? someone will appreciate it, even if you personally don't like networking with gamers or coffee drinkers. smile

#4, sort of like YouTube.

#5, the site has no pop-ups and a single banner at the top. use Spybot -- http://www.spybot.com/ -- to check your computer for spyware/malware, which is likely causing your pop-up and advertisement issues.

Well, bear in mind that the links were simply posted for any that may be interested.
I share Yo Mama's sentiment... I too have gotten tired of the networking scene... not nearly as hardcore on forums as I used to be... good riddance I say. But we differ when I say, "it's a good idea to at least check out the site periodically." You simply never know when you might read something interesting and/or useful.
So even if you're not as inclined to post as you once were. It's good to simply browse. Keep on top of things, y'know?

@ #4: I know what you mean. Usually, flame wars start because one or more people (deliberately) fail to use tact when posing an objection or criticism. In turn, egos get bruised, rub like flint, and "fwoosh" flame war.
That's probably the only problem with dealing with fellow geeks.

What would be silly is if this thread turns into a discussion about the purpose (or lack of purpose) of social networking sites. lol LoL!
If you're interested check it out. If not, no harm done. Another site just like it will pop up in a month (maybe sooner).

Reason for social networking sites - to put up drunken photo's of your nights out so everyone in the world can see you actually have a social life and friends, but then again 99% of the people seeing this are virtual friends...or nosey people like me. I laugh, a long deep hearty evil laugh, when I hear people who get fired for posting up sh*t about their workplace on a social networking site or the ones that don't get jobs because their prospective employer's simply google their name and come across 100 posted drunken photos of the person with the emaculate resumè....I have or had some profiles, but I do not use them as religiously as I used to mainly cos they opened up Facebook, which was once for college students, to high schoolers and then the general public...the site got infected with bolloxology and tad da! facebook ruined.....same will happen to this..If it gets popular they will sell out to pre-teens, cam wh*res, scammers, spammers and the general dreg of internet society!.

In conclusion, social networking probably won't be as popular in 10 years as it is now for the simple reason something better will come along wink

Same will happen here

lol, i just don't understand people's negativity.

#9, this site has a reasonable purpose: to provide a means for gamers to find other like-minded individuals and offer a way for gamers to express themselves on their profile. did you even bother to read the body of this post or the "About Us" page on FriendlyGamer.net?

#11, you might be right. however, do you think Mark Zuckerberg would even care if Facebook is dead in 10 years after having generated thousands of jobs and billions of dollars with a piece of Internet real estate created from nothing?

#12, excellent contribution to this thread. [/sarcasm]

for those of you with personal vendettas against FriendlyGamer, the Internet, games, society, the world, etc. and who don't push your uninteresting, uninformative agendas in this thread, i applaud you! smile

I don't understand the argument behind it being or not being around in 10 years. Is that important? Call of Duty: WoW wont be around in 10 years lol and you all are enjoying that. Something better will come along. That's obvious for anything really, except Starcraft or WoW I guess.

Maybe i should clear up what i meant by my comment. Not the site itself that is wannabe-popular, but a lot of the poeple that make the accounts. .

I'm dutch, and over here not a conversation goes by in which people don't ask "Do you have Hyves? Do you have Myspace? Do you have Facebook?" "How many friends do you have?? Oh, i have 20 times more! i have over 20.000!"
I have merely grown tired of the looks on people's faces when i say "no i dont". Like i'm some kind of person from the dark ages for not having a profile on a website... I've had people actually making a profile for me after i've said no, practically trying to force me to get a profile. That kinda sparked what i said.

My apologies if it sounded like i had a problem with this particular site.

#19, the goal of GamerDNA is compiling data from a game perspective. all the stats and interesting content is based around games. although people have profiles with personal information, there's no system set up to really connect gamers on an individual basis quite like FriendlyGamer does.
